Bale, Cooper Re-Team For “Hostiles”

“Out of the Furnace” actor Christian Bale and director Scott Cooper are set to team for the western drama “Hostiles” which begins shooting this summer.

The story centers on a Native American-hating soldier, nearing retirement, who is given one last assignment: to escort an Indian chief back to his Montana reservation.

Along the way he comes across a young widow and fights back attacks by Comanche tribes – learning to respect the race he hates.

Donald Stewart (“The Hunt for Red October,” “Patriot Games”) penned the script which Cooper has since re-written. Jon Lesher and Ken Kao are producing.
